This project contributes to the four-lane widening of Highway 412 between Walnut Ridge and Paragould. When complete, the additional lanes will enhance the transportation connection between the cities, increase capacity, and improve traveler safety.
This project widened approximately 14.5 miles of Highway 412 to four lanes, extending generally from Highway 67 in Lawrence County to Highway 141 in Greene County. This project includes a proposed southern bypass of the Light community.
Arkansas Department of Transportation opened contractor bids in January 2019. The Arkansas State Highway Commission approved a bid for improvements by Atlas Asphalt, Inc. - Delta Asphalt of Ark., Inc., awarding the project for $58.5 million.
Schedules are preliminary and are subject to change as project development progresses.
